Very pro-Napoleon; dreadful edition,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Napoleon (Paperback)
As for the book itself - a fascinating read, but very much the biography as Napoleon might have wanted it. You would want to read other accounts to get a balanced picture. This edition is dreadful - especially the pictures. Some of the ones listed in the contents aren't there at all, the others look like they've been through several dodgy photocopiers. The thought occurred to me that it might be a counterfeit copy - if not, Harper Collins should be ashamed to put their name to it.
